Genome projects launched for three extreme-environment animals
Date:4/27/2009

y of complete genome sequence data will enable better analyses of changes in penguin population diversity as they relate to environmental changes and will also enhance current genetic research programs, such as those that focus on physiology, taxonomy, and reproduction.

The Tibetan antelope is native to the Tibetan plateau in China, and inhabits alpine meadow and desert regions at an altitude of 3,500-5,500 meters above sea level. The Tibetan antelope is the only extant species in the Pantholops genus. It has been evolutionarily isolated since the Himalayan orogeny, and has undergone millions of years of evolution that has not involved species migration or artificial selection. It has several adaptations for alpine-cold tolerance and most specifically for anti-hypoxia and running, making it a key model animal to investigate mammalian hypoxia adaptability.

The launch of these sequencing projects not only fills taxonomic gaps for completing an extensive and detailed complete genomic picture for the Tree of Life project that was previously launched at BGI-Shenzhen, it also provide an essential scientific basis for further studies on extreme-climate adaptation, evolution, diversity, species protection, and climate change.

"The world of genomics has witnessed revolutionary advancements in past 2 years, as driven by breakthroughs in next generation sequencing technology," said Dr. Yafei Liu, Head of Sequencing Business at Asia Pacific & Japan, Illumina China. He added, "Genomics research is taking a prominent position in today's world. BGI Shenzhen is a distinguished organization, not only because it has a world-class genomics technology platform, but also because it is assuming strong responsibility for society. Sequencing the genomes of endangered species is of significant scientific and social value, and we are very pleased that BGI Shenzhen is initiating these projects today." Dr. Liu also highlighted that ILMN has had a long and positive re
